Affected Services

Water, sanitary, hydro, telephone, cable TV, and gas services should not be affected by the construction, barring any unforeseen circumstances. Access for emergency service vehicles will always be maintained.

Curbside Collection: On the normal curbside collection day, residents are asked to place all garbage, organics, recyclables and yard waste materials at the front of your property as usual. The City’s waste pickup contractor is anticipated to have access through the construction site. It is very important that you take your refuse and recyclable items to the front of your property by 7am, otherwise these items might not be picked up.

Access to Properties

All reasonable efforts will be made to maintain vehicle access to driveways. However, there may be some temporary interruptions to access during construction while construction vehicles maneuver. Access will be restored as quickly as possible. The contractor will provide prior notice of any imminent access restrictions to the businesses and residents.
Pedestrian access to all homes and businesses will be maintained during construction.

Safety

The contractor is required to conduct their work in a safe manner, including fencing of deep excavations, etc. We ask that you take extra caution during the construction period to ensure everyone’s safety.
